Falling Into the Arms of God Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

From St. Teresa of Avila, ancient meditations to enrich everyday living.

Synopsis:

An intellectual as well as a mystic, St. Teresa of Avila is a beloved figure in Christianity, particularly among women, and often even among non-Christians. Born into Spanish nobility in 1515, she entered the Carmelite monastery in Spain and eventually reformed the way it and the order operated. She was remarkably able to blend a rich mystical inner life with practical work in the secular world - something that inspired modern day Mother Teresa to take her name as her own. Falling into the Arms of God presents key aspects of St. Teresa's life and work in an unparalleled way: it emphasizes modern interpretation and highlights the practical application of her teachings to the lives of contemporary spiritual seekers. Beginning with a brief introduction to her life, the book features seven meditations taken directly from her writings. Each passage is accompanied by an explanation of what lessons it may hold for today's reader, plus a suggestion for guided meditation.
